This could be normal for the summer. This is the right temp to keep it at. Some units are meant to run 80 - 90 % of the time. Turn it all the way up and check the temp. Most units when working properly can get below 0. Check the condensor underneath for dirt and to see if the fan is running under there. (smaller units don't have anything underneath) Some have coils in the rear and the smallest units just use the sides of the cabinet to disperse the heat. Check the gasket see if its sealing properly or maybe the door is warped and not closing at the bottom.

Yes, go ahead and raise the setting. Keep in mind the location of the freezer effects it's run time. If it is in a hot shed or porch it will run more than if it is in a cool house.

Delfield 6000 series 404a, need running pressure in 94 degree kitchen


300-350 on high side. Way too high. Most all commercial unit are built to live in an environment of not more than about 80. Some survive 85. Above that, it's will die due to over working and heating.

There has got to be a way to change the factory preset freezer temperature on a Delfield 6000 series MCII to operate at refrigerator tempatures. Does anyone know how I can change the factory preset...


Do you mean to go up to +36 degrees? If so, it just won't work correctly. The refrigerant is the wrong one to run at 36 degrees. The pressure on the "low" side of the compressor is so low that the compressor will starve for freon if you tried to change the thermostat to "warm" it up to +36. Also the defrost cycle would have to be disabled or it would jump to 50 or 60 degrees 4 times a day. It also has the wrong cap tube for that temperature. It could be done with a very expensive condensing unit changeout. Over the years I have seen a lot of people try it and nobody that I know have been succesful at it. It may be easier to find someone who wants to trade. After all a freezer is worth more dollars than a cooler. Good luck.

The first thing to check is the condenser coil at the bottom of the freezer. Take the slatted front cover off at the bottom where the compressor is located. You will see the conderser coils. This looks like a radiator with aluminum fins, about 16 by 16 inches square. Be sure the coils are clean. Since the compressor is close to the floor it pulls a lot of dust into the coils. You may need to take a long stiff bristle brush to get as much dust as possible off the coils. If this is stopped up, the unit will definately overheat very quickly. While you are down there make sure the fan behind the coils is running. There are several reasons the fan might stop running. The motor can burn out, something can impede the fan blades such as paper, or sometimes rodents. If the fan isn't running the compressor will overheat and shut off. Once you check these basic things, you may then have to address the problem of dissapating the heat. The answer to your question is yes, it will shut down if it gets too hot. You need plenty of air space behind and over the unit in your situation. The air needs to flow into the front bottom section of this unit and flow freely out the back. All commercial refrigeration is designed to operate in 75 degree areas. As your room temperature increases the efficiency of the freezer will decrease. It is not uncommon to find these units in kitchens where the temperature is 85 even 90 degrees. They will continue to work, but will probably run all the time. I would think if you could get 3 to 4 inches of space at the back of the unit and the two feet above the unit with clean coils and properly running fans, you should get better results. You MUST have free flowing air to keep the unit running. The ideal situation is to have the air flow directly through from front to the back of the compressor compartment. In your case, you may have to move the freezer away from the back wall and allow the air to flow up the back of the freezer and out over the top into the room. 2 inch holes are not enough.

Freezer stopped working for a period of time while we were gone for 4 days...set house thermostat to 86 degrees


Is this a commercial freezer? If so, it might be because you don't have proper ventilation for it. Commercial units put off a lot more heat than residential units. Turning the thermostat up to 86 degrees will make it even more difficult for this unit to not overheat.

New freezer set on 4. Runs a lot. Could we raise setting safely.


Yes you can raise the setting if you'd like. The rule of thumb is to raise it one number and allow it to adjust for 24 hours to see a change in internal temperatures. Freezers can run more for several reasons. One is the amount of product inside- the more the merrier. More frozen food will hold the temperatures longer. Another common issue is location, my own freezer is located in the garage at my house and runs quite a bit in the summer, as the temperature outside increases the lenght and frequency of the freezer running will increase. Freezers transfer the heat they remove from inside the box to the outside of the box, so the warmer it is outside, the longer they have to run to do the job.
Also be sure to keep a good eye on this, keep a thermometer in it and make sure you are not having to turn it way up to get it to "0 f" at least, as you may have a sealed system problem. Real ice cream (not fat free or sherbert) is a great indicator of temperatures- at 0 degrees f. real ice cream is firm but scoopable, 5 below and it's pretty hard, 5 above and is't starting to get soft on the outside.
Hope this was helpful to you!

This sounds like your motherboard,computer or control board(they call it different things in different models) is bad. It is responsible for the fan speed and timing of the defrost cycle. To locate your timer, motherboard, control or adaptive defrost control , enter your model number and search for the part or post back on Fixya.
